Breakdown of the 4 Games this year between SJ and Nux

November 26- Blowout in favour of the canucks. Tambo had a goal back when Tambo still looked like he was capable of playing in the top 6. Nowadays, Tambo has been a healthy scratch 95 percent of these playoffs. Ballard had a goal too this game, unfortunately he has found himself out of the lineup this playoffs too. Hopefully the good play of these two players in the regular season against the sharks helps them draw into the canucks lineup this playoffs.

January 3. Cory Schneider played and helped backstop the canucks to a 4-3 win. The Canucks had an early lead but blew it in the second. sharks held the lead for 3:14 before hansen tied it up.

January 20. sharks win 2-1 in a shootout Canucks opened the scoring but couldn't do anything else. Joe Pavelski scored in the shootout. Luongo played but his performance was overshadowed by an even stronger game by Niemi. The Sharks never held lead once in the only game they won against the canucks all season.

March 11. Canucks win 5-4 in a SO and Schneider was in net. Cory made 44 saves and played strong but you have to assume that Luongo would have been even stronger. Niemi played for san jose. At no point in the game did san jose have a lead, but canucks blew three separate leads to keep San Jose hanging around.

In a total 250 minutes played against the canucks this season, the San Jose Sharks were only capable of holding the lead for a combined 3 minutes and 14 seconds.
